"My father... removed from Kentucky to... Indiana, in my eighth year... It was a wild region, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. There I grew up... Of course when I came of age, I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write, and cipher... but that was all."
Now we only have one bear in Indiana. He has been spotted up near Lake Michigan. I have gotten lost a couple of times in Indiana.... on roads just like this one. Indiana has a quiet beauty.
